George MacDonald's fairy stories and fantasy have inspired a number of writers including C.S. Lewis and J.R.R.

Reviewer: Timothy Ferguson - - April 3, 2013
Subject: Well read, but hard to recommend
This book is one of the antedelluvian originators of the fantasy genre, in whose DNA we are able to see what will eventually evolve into C.S. Lewis’s Narnia, and other works of similar school, and all that followed them. Tori Amos is also working on a project based on it. I liked it in the beginning, as a sort of whimsical fantasy story, but it loses interest because its plot is insufficently gripping. The ending is clearly designed for a sequel, and yet I have no desire to read The Prinjcess and Curdie. I’ll give him a break and then go back for some of his adult works: Phantasies, perhaps.

Andy Minter, as always, does an excellent job as reader.

Subject: Charming story wonderfully read
Andy Minter does a wonderful job of reading this charming children's story. He brings the characters to life with realistic voices and emotions and the story just carries one along! I would highly recommend this book and Andy's reading of it. (BTW, I heard Andy talk about this recording on a Librivox podcast - he mentioned that he had initially read it as a gift for one of his grandchildren, and only later put it in form for release via Librivox. So glad that he chose to share his gift with a wider audience.)
